Promotional film for a series of books published by Paper Division of Champion Papers Inc., describing how images in film are graphically translated and vibrantly reproduced on their paper. This particular book and film, Imagination 10, showcases the beauty and design of trains and attempts to capture the experience of traveling by train, describing the landscapes and city lights blurring by like moving paintings. A variety of trains are shown from every possible angle and exterior detail, with some interior dining shots, and many views from front, rear and side windows while the train is in motion.

Subject: The Best of Industrial Films
This film shows us the interesting world of the railroad by using innovative photographic techniques. The purpose is to show how stills can be reproduced with dramatic artistry on Champion International paper stock for books, etc. The whole feel is chic yet charming. The narrator, Gerald Mohr, has a warm, classic voice. The storyline is tight and cohesive and the custom score, which includes a folksy, jazzy version of "I've Been Working on the Railroad" is cool. All in all, as good as gets.
